In other TV news, Showtime’s Ray Donovan – starring Liev Schreiber as a South Boston Irish fixer relocated to the West Coast – will soon begin filming its sixth season.  The show will actually be returning to its roots, in a way, with the Donovan clan heading back east, setting up shop in New York City – specifically Staten Island, though some filming will actually take place in sections of upstate New York, including a local Irish pub, called O’Donoghue’s Tavern (known affectionately as OD’s to locals).  If you’ve not yet binge-watched Ray Donovan, it is definitely worth your time, mixing dark comedy and family drama in a way that makes it a kind of Boston-Irish Sopranos. ♦
